A southbound 2700 West automobile hit two of them. The teenagers’ ages are unknown, however, they are believed to be between 13 and 14.

Police Chief Brady Cottam said the accident happened about 7 p.m.

One of the two hospitalized kids is in critical condition.

Cottam had no clue where or how the kids were being relocated.

He did say a third adolescent had minor injuries. No word on the fourth teenager. Their family has been notified.

The Matterhorn Drive crossing has no flashing lights, but it has crossing flags. According to Cottam, there was proof they were using flags. Cottam argues that teens had right of way if using the crosswalk. The collision prompted an assessment of the crosswalk’s lighting.
